2024 and 2025 Fantomen Softcover Album - Theme Prince Rex

During the Uppsala Comix Convention Fantomen editor Andreas Eriksson announced the 2024 and 2025 Fantomen Softcover Album theme to be released in October 2024 (and 2025). The book's theme will be about the beloved Prince Rex character who was first adopted by the Phantom in 1966 and in 1982 was found out to be a prince to the mountain kingdom Baronkhan.

This year's book is called "Djungelpojken Rex", which is translated to "Rex, the Jungle Boy". At this stage, the contents have not been announced but below is our best assumption of what to expect.

Cover art is by Luca Erbetta who does a great job at capturing the love and closeness between the Phantom and his ward, Rex.

The softcover albums are usually 128 pages and consist of 4-6 stories printed in black and white. We can confirm that the following four stories will be included in the 2024 album.

  • "Rex King" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • "Rex, the Missing Heir" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • Dangerous Vacation” by Ulf Granberg and Jaime Vallvé

  • "Tale of Rex" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

There are many other newspaper and Team Fantomen stories featuring Rex that could fit in the 2025 album. While we do not know the stories, we have selected a couple that could be good options.

  • "The Rogue Elephant" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • "Jungle Olympics" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • "Rex and the Little People" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • "Visit to Baronkhan" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • "Ruler of Baronkhan" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • "Rex: Prince of Baronkhan" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

  • "Prince Rex and Princess Alicia" by Lee Falk and Sy Barry

The beauty about this book is it will be available for sale throughout Sweden, Norway and Finland so many more phans can enjoy re-reading these classic stories. The release date is August 2024. The cheapest price we have found is 168kr ($25AU, $15US/EU and 1,300INR) and the pre order links are below.

Keep an eye on our website for more information as it becomes announced and our review of the book.
